I listen to an average of 100 books a year, and the Longmire books are some of my most favorite! I find myself going back and relistening (they have to be fantastic for me to re-listen) time and again. George Guidall is a brilliant narrator, also one of my favorites!
Captivating nuanced storytelling.
Gravitas. I found it a little hard to distinguish between the two main male voices, but once I got the distinction it was wonderful.
It made me feel and it made me think.
I have listened to several books since, and I have compared them all (negatively) to this one. I'm chomping at the bit to get to the rest of the Walt Longmire series!
These stories from Craig Johnson are the best I have heard. I like the rural setting, and believable, real life characters. The tempo of the story increases as the blizzard sets in, climaxing in a fury of a violent struggle for life at the peak of a blizzard, and a few meetings with Indian ghosts thrown in. The narration is spectacular. I reallly liked the portrayal of the native american characters, Henry and Lonnie. I listen to these stories to keep me from falling asleep when I am driving. This one had my heart pumping. I will surely listen to every one of Craig Johnson's books.
No, I think Johnson knows what he's doing
The most interesting aspect for me is that it is set in an area of the country i dont really know much about. Maybe learning about the term sharp shooter.
Don't really have a least interesting. It was mostly all interesting.
George Guidall is among the best and I never have anything but praise for his performances.
Yes, I am happy I listened to it.
I'll put my only negative comments here. After I finished the book, I just moved on. I finished it a week or two ago and hadn't really thought about it since. I don't really have anything to point out as not good. But, usually a good book sticks in my mind a while. I will want to read what other people have said about it or what the next book in the series is about. Nothing like that happened for me. I had almost completely forgotten I listened to it until I went through my library just now to review another book I just finished. Thinking back upon it now, It was a good story. I liked many parts of it. It just didn't have that lasting effect on me.
I will probably re-read this sometime in the future. It was that enjoyable. The story, the character development and the narration were excellent.
The ending took me totally by surprise. No way was I expecting that.
The final scene was probably my favorite.
Very funny in places. It was great to witness the development of the major characters and get to know them as people.
Characters are well developed, very real. The story does not disappoint.
Great story, hated to have it end
I first book I listened to by George Guidall was Hard Country. It was a five star performance, which led to to this book.Guidall has the perfect voice for the west, gritty,tough, very good nuance.
Yes, but I'm glad I couldn't. I really enjoyed every hour.
I'll listen to more of this series.
Yes. The combination of clever banter and a swiftly moving plot kept me riveted.
He is expert at reflecting the characters as written by Craig Johnson and showing just the right amount of emotion in his storytelling.
No. I just enjoyed it all the way through.
I'll be listening to more in this series.
Had me going in a completely different direction. I am such a George Guidall fan, his reading style keeps me interested like no other. Great story with George reading is a recipe for a great book.
These two are perfect, awesome author and ideal narrator. I really think George Guidall IS Walt Longmire, especially true if you watch the series on TV. They have to be the same!
Never was sure about "who done it," til the end.
Lonnie in the barn
Just made me want to listen to more!
Addicted to the series!
I would recommend this book and all the others in this series.The Walt Longmire character
is the most loving and caring fictional person that I have ever read about. He carrys over
in the same wonderful way from book to book. George Guidall is the best I have ever
listened to. He brings all the characters to life.
The relationship between Walt and Henry.
Choosing a favorite character is almost impossible. Maybe Henry and Walt because
they play so well together.
Maybe not all in one sitting, But I have listened to it a lot more than once.
Just tell Craig Johnson that I am waiting for the next in a great series. Also, tell George
Guidall that he will forever be Walt Longmire to me.
